    surely considering the huge amount of similarities, it should look like an LG100 for a start...? seems there's quite a few variations away from the LG series in the detail... if you look at the detail, you'll see there's quite a few dimensions which although are roughly the same are quite different in proportion...

    i wonder if it's some copy/fudge up...

    " thanks for your inquiry.

    The rifle was produced in 2009. The wooden stock is not a STEYR production. Unfortunately the quality of the pictures is not that good. It looks like the owner cut the aluminium housing at the front but this is not 100 %obvious. The first rifle we produced and the last are looking same. So you can compare with current pictures.

    Kind regards
